"Mantra Rock Dance...bring cushions, drums, bells, cymbals"

btw cream-puff-war, did ISKCON ever get back to you with any recordings of the event?

looks like there isn't much known about it;

might have been interesting...

midnight sun -

ISKCON didn't get back to me, but it would be worth someone's time to try again.
I emailed one of their tape/cd/dvd outlets, and posted an inquiry about the event on their bulletin board in the '60s thread.

Guessing from the Bhaktivedanta archives posted on LMA, they taped quite a lot of the 1966-1967 era.

Whether they saved the whole show, it's possible though the rock portion wouldn't have been circulated among themselves.

Perhaps it sits on a reel, buried in their tape vaults.

They do have tapes (and free d/l) of Swami Bhaktivedanta meeting with The Beatles; and they sell a collection of George Harrison stuff.

This is a research project for someone who really loves the young Dead... I hope someone tries and succeeds.
Money might motivate them to search.

I read somewhere that the Krishnas sometimes brought food backstage to Grateful Dead shows...

Maybe they never forgot the Dead's generosity in helping put on the benefit that got them their 2nd temple in America.
